Good morning friends.. I am sitting here today in great mood, feeling happy and hopeful.. Happy has been here all along, hopeful was taking a wee bit more work recently as I was beginning to get a little nervous the longer hubby and I have been out of work..
BUT yesterday I got the call and a firm back to full-time work date in 5 weeks!!!! AND my husband also got a good solid lead yesterday on a potential job after months of nothing that fits.. over qualified/under qualified/not interested ....
So glad we are taking a little vacation next week... for me since I was "employed" this whole time, even though it was only 1 day a week, I did not lose any seniority or benefits so I will retain my 5 weeks vacation level that I have achieved being here over 25 years, he will be back at the 2 weeks a year to start threshold so this is probably our first/last opportunity for a real vacation together for quite some time.
So after my morning routine of bible app, coffee, quiet time we hopped in the car and headed up to watch Ryder for a few hours. He was not as talkative, more reflective if you will. He climbed up on my lap and fell asleep watching his cartoons again.. I love those moments. We crawled around the floor a bit, slid down the slide (him not me it's too little) and of course breakfast and lunch in the high chair is always fun. After lunch he sat and played with his little spinner and listened to his baby music. It's so crazy how time spent just sitting and watching him play passes by so quickly.. He almost walked for us.. stood a few times, looked like he was going to take off, took a step wobbled, then dropped to the floor and crawled at break neck speed.
Came home and delivered the #lasangalove match for this week then went to the new pizza place up the block we had tried out a few weeks ago. Met up with my bestie for pizza, wings and sangria. We stayed outside under the big tent, the inside was mobbed, they were crazy busy service took a while but it was nice to just sit back and relax and catch up... she was the one that mentioned her job was hiring and my husband has a skill set that matches what they are looking for.. so prayers, positive thoughts please would be most welcome.
Came home watched a little tv, had a little ice cream and dozed off to sleep. Did toss and turn a bit, probably all the carbs, but got over 7 hours, first time since Sunday night.. Ironically the stress management level dropped to 68 which is absurd because I did not feel ANY stress at all yesterday. And before you concern yourself, I promise I am not obsessing or concerned, it just goes to show that data sometimes is way off and we must rely on how we actually feel and not on what things around us "tell us" how we should feel.
It is almost #tullytime and then I have to do a virtual #5k today in support of one of our own from Avenel and friend of my son.
Well I must run. Have an amazing day and remember to look for that light, it could come from the most unexpected places at the most unexpected times. Namaste!!!
